The elegant house at 405 West Neck Road in Lloyd Harbor, originally a Dutch farmhouse built in 1830, was transformed into a Victorian.
Once owned by the Axe family, who also owned Tarrytown Castle, the home features exquisite details on the exterior and interior, bringing us back to a time when men wore top hats and women corsets and rode in horse-drawn carriages. Today, that very same home is on the market for $1,495,000.
Set on 2.1 acres, the 12-room house includes seven bedrooms, three full and two half baths, great room with fireplace, study, gourmet eat-in-kitchen with breakfast area, master suite with bath and partial basement. There is also a private driveway and two-car garage with brick patio and brick deck.
“It’s a romantic house with high ceilings, big rooms, plenty of natural light,” says Peggy Moriarty of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty, the realtor representing the home. “It’s located in the historic district in Lloyd Harbor.”
The homeowners who have been living in the house for the last 40 years made some significant improvements over the years, says Moriarty. Within the last year, they replaced the slate mansard roof with hand-cut Vermont slate and put a new roof on the garage. They also regraded and regraveled the bluestone on the driveway, converted from oil to a natural gas heating system and installed three-zone air conditioning.
Additional improvements include a gut renovation on three full bathrooms that all have radiant heat floors. The half bath on the ground level was also redone. A great room was also added onto the home with a fireplace that has a separate heating and air-conditioning system.
All the more room for the next owners.
